It’s the summertime and you know what that means, hot weather, BBQ’s, fat blunts and sweet drinks. We’re sure you know how to take care of the first three, but we have a nice idea on how to make your summertime cannabis-infused drinks.



We’re going to skip the ‘how-to’ on making cannabis-infused alcohol because there’s a slew of different ways & methods scattered throughout the internet. We do suggest you make a biiiiig batch of your favorite canna-infused liquor for delicious cannabis-infused drinks all summer long. The liquor-infusing process may be a little on the longer side

Knock it out with one punch, and you’ll be set.

The Lawnmower

I know what you’re thinking, “wtf is this name, I’m tired of doing outdoor chores,” but listen, it’s called Lawnmower because you’re “cutting the grass with alcohol.”

Clever, we know.

Whatcha need:
  • Vegetable juicer
  • Drink shaker
  • 1 apple (seedless & chunked)
  • 2 carrots (chunked)
  • 1 inch long sliver of ginger
  • 1/2 of a peeled lemon (you can peel it in a fancy design to later garnish your drinks with)
  • 2 oz. of that “special” vodka
Whatcha need to do:
  1. Throw the apple, carrot, ginger and lemon chunks into a juicer and let it work it’s magic
  2. Fill your drink shaker with a few ice cubes, pour in the juice from the juicer (which should be about 1/2 cup), then 1 fl oz of the canna-infused vodka.
  3. Shake Shake, Shake Shake, Shake it
  4. Use a strainer to pour your concoction into a few shot glasses. You can definitely ground up some fresh ice and your Lawnmower to make a frozen treat.
  5. Ground up some fresh ice along with your finished Lawnmower to make a frozen treat. Garnish your glass with the peel of the lemon you saved from earlier.

Whatcha need:
  • 6 cups *cold* water
  • 10 lemons (if you want it less potent, use 6-8 lemons)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp infused vegetable glycerin
  • Vegetable juicer
  • Fancy-Dancy pitcher
Whatcha need to do:
  1. Add the 6 cups of cold water into your fancy-dancy pitcher, then set to the side
  2. Cut each lemon in half, then use your hand, or a reamer, to squeeze each half of your lemons into a bowl.
  3. Strain your lemon juice into your fancy-dancy pitcher. If you’d like to keep the pulp, don’t use the strainer – just beware of seeds!
  4. Grab your sugar and slowly pour it into the pitcher, watch for the back-splash.
  5. Stir the sugar in completely, as it likes to settle near the bottom.
  6. Add your desired amount of the infused vegetable glycerin (we recommend the 3 tsp), then stir one more time.
  7. Plop the fancy-dancy pitcher in the fridge for a few hours. Be sure to taste your lemonade beforehand.
